OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Leckenby is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Arsene Wenger with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, intelligent population of 19.635 billion, 17.831 billion of whom are zombies, Leckenbyians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arjen. The average income tax rate is 68%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, rag-wearing teachers are often mistaken for homeless people, a government program is underway to revitalize Leckenby's beaches, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leckenby's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Euro.

Leckenby is ranked 1st in Emirates and 114,627th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -27 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Leckenby is currently considering its options.
